Sometimes...

Sometimes marriage is hard. Sometimes I want to gripe. Sometimes I want to scream. Sometimes I want to crawl inside a hole. Sometimes I want to body slam my husband. Sometimes I don't want to say I'm sorry. Sometimes I don't want to compromise. Sometimes I don't want to talk. Sometimes I don't feel like serving, loving and honoring my husband.

Sometimes marriage is hard.

This is not one of those times. This is one of those times where I can see fully why God placed The Man directly into my life at the perfect time. This is one of those times that anyone else wouldn't understand. This is one of those times where a singing fish on a plaque is better than the typical red roses. This is one of those times where a good back massage is just the medicine I need everyday for a week straight. This is one of those times where he lets me be mean and doesn't quickly correct me. This is one of those times that he lets me tickle him (even though he hates it) just because he knows it makes me feel better. This is one of those times where he listens to me for a good hour without being distracted. This is one of those times where I feel him pointing me to Jesus by his response. This is one of those times that he lets me lay my head on his shoulder even when his arm is asleep. This is one of those times he lets me order out for my lunch hour even though we shouldn't really spend the money. This is one of those times when he lets you see the movie you've been wanting to see. This is one of the times when he helps me remember tasks that are too important to forget. This is one of those times that he lets me read quietly beside him for hours because he knows that I want to finish this book. This is one of the times when he is so honest it makes me feel that have bonds that will never brake. This is one of the times when he offers to do a photo session (on the tripod) even though it's hot and he'd rather not be taking photos.

Sometimes marriage is tough.
This is not one of those times.

Sometimes marriage is pure bliss!
